Although there are domesticated, private herds in many states, only pure strain, wild bison are recognized by the Boone and Crockett Club’s records program. States and provinces that currently have wild bison are Alaska, Arizona, Montana, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, Alberta, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, and Yukon Territories.
